One of the biggest blindspots in my musical education is the Ramones. Sure, have listened to the "hits", but don't know the deep cuts, and all of the curious information about the of the band. Yesterday, the band lost the last original member of the band, Tommy Erdelyi. Tommy played drums and grew tired of the touring life, leaving the band in the late 70's, but still hanging around to help in the studio and to manage things. In the 80's, he produced quite possibly the finest work the Replacements and Paul Westerberg would ever create, Tim. So, for today, a smile, a nod, and gentle goodbye to Tommy. Today's Song of the Day is from the Ramones, possibly their most notable song, Blitzkrieg Bop.
